Winner of LHBA’s Best Showroom Design 2023
If you haven’t visited Progressive Countertop’s boutique-style showroom in London, Ontario, let us introduce you! This is the place for homeowners and design industry professionals alike to get inspired and browse the latest industry-leading stone surfaces; from quartz and porcelain, to ceramic and Dekton®.
Intentionally designed as a demonstration space, the inviting layout features a variety of custom, well-lit display cases and design features; It’s an immersive retail experience for customers to view hand-held samples, as well as be inspired to explore different stone surface formats, beyond countertops. Design features include a large format quartz fireplace, a mosaic wall feature, a meeting room with stone surfaces on the counters, tables and even on the windowsills!
Patricia Fletcher, from Intention Interiors & Design helped bring the vision to life. “I believe that all of this space is a showroom, and I approached it that way. I want all of the spaces to function for the employees, as well as guests of the showroom. Every single area of this showroom is a display – showcasing countertops, different materials, applications. Staff & guests can use the space all together, as a whole – it’s everyone’s space.”
Elevated design, customer access and support are all part of the Progressive Countertop experience. Display cases carry industry-leading brands from Cambria®️, HanStone Quartz, Wilsonart and DEKTON®️, to name a few. Customers can take samples home for colour-matching and inspiration.
A unique highlight is the eye-catching stone mosaic wall, displayed directly behind the reception desk. Patricia says, “It’s one of the first things you see when you walk in. I love to incorporate art into design. The fun thing about this [display] is we discovered a bunch of slabs that they [Progressive Countertop] were hoping to repurpose and bring to the new showroom. So, I came up with this design that showcases those stones – different finishes, different protrusions; the depths and thicknesses were all different.”
Demonstrating that different stone surfaces can pull a space and style together is key. The options for elevating your space at Progressive Countertop are endless. There’s also a warm, inviting fireplace featuring Southport™ by Cambria® Quartz with the mantle in Cambria’s Blackpool Matte™. “I wanted the feel and the vibe to be comfortable – to make it intimate and have people feel welcomed, says Patricia.”
